Updated 11 May 2020
There have been queries and discussion on social media about how people can aid those in need during lockdown as well as show appreciation for those who are assisting.
The CRA asks residents to say “Thank you” to all the medical workers, emergency service staff, the military, the police, the carers and all those workers in essential services who are working so hard to keep us safe by going out onto your balconies and into your gardens at 19:00 to clap, beat a drum and blow your vuvuzelas for a minute, to show your appreciation.
